Purely Inspired 100% Plant-Based Protein Chocolate Banana Nut Shake

Most often I find that the best meal of the day is my breakfast! I usually throw together a protein shake or smoothie using Purely Inspired 100% Plant Based Protein but I always try to mix up the flavors so it never gets old.  Today I woke up in the mood for chocolate in a bad kind of way.  Most of you know that I’m trying to stay on track with my eating choices and training, and hopefully I might be able to lose a few pounds which, to a runner translates to shaving some time off my running speed. 

So, when I wanted chocolate soooooo bad, I knew today was the day for a chocolate shake for breakfast to satisfy my urges and avoid a cheat/slip on my part.  I started off with some crushed ice.  Because I buy fruit when it’s on sale, then cut it up and put various serving sizes into sandwich bags and then put all of them in a freezer bag.  It saves money and it saves the hassle of cutting or peeling fruit in the morning.  Today I decided I wanted banana, so I pulled out a full banana, already frozen and sliced, and popped it into the mixing cup. I added the appropriate measurement of chocolate flavored Purely Inspired 100 Plant Based Protein, and then topped it off with some sugarfree vanilla almond cashew milk.  I threw that on the blender while I prepared my lunch to take to work to keep me on track there too.  When I returned to the blender, I saw my deliciously mixed and very chocolate-flavored frothy shake that I just couldn’t wait to drink. protein

Can you say YUMMMMMMMMMY? It was fast, easy, and fantastic flavored. I’d call that a great recipe, wouldn’t you? Lucky for me (and you), Purely Inspired protein mix comes in chocolate, strawberry and vanilla, so I will continue to try various recipes I create and/or find on the internet and if they taste halfway decent, I will share them with you!
